This is a wonderful collection of American female heroes, written with the theme that each ‘persisted’ to reach their dreams. The collection includes women from several races, a woman with disabilities, an anesthesiologist, as well as well-known and little-known women from the past and present. It’s easy, delightful, and inspiring to read. Geared for young readers it’s a perfect way to help girls launch their dreams.
